Like other airport operators around the world, the airports operated by Groupe ADP (including those operated by TAV Airport Holdings and GMR Airports Limited) saw an unprecedented decline in passenger traffic for the year 2020 due to the outbreak of the COVID19 pandemic. Passenger traffic at Groupe ADP’s airports fell by 60.4% to reach 96.3 million passengers in 2020. At Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Paris Orly Airport, passenger traffic dropped by 70.8% and 66.1% to reach 22.3 million passengers and 10.8 million passengers, respectively. Groupe ADP’s turnover for the year 2020 fell by 54.5% to reach EUR 2,137mn. EBITDA remained positive, even though it declined by 90.5% to EUR 168m.

For 2020, the Group made a net loss of EUR 1,169m, which was EUR 1,757m lower than the EUR 588m net profit it achieved in 2019. While IATA has forecast a strong recovery of global passenger traffic by 2023, it is still too early to determine the extent of recovery for the year 2021. Groupe ADP has made financial stabilization a key priority and anticipates a return to the 2019 traffic level for its Paris Airports sometime between 2024 and 2027.
